The BBC's popular crime drama Death In Paradise will film in London for a two-part special of the murder mystery series
The comedy-infused drama has been one of the network's most viewed shows since it first aired in 2011. Kris Marshall stars as the out-of-place DI Humphrey Goodman working on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint Marie alongside the cheerful local officers.
The new series will see Humphrey and the rest of the Honoré Police Team travel to London to investigate a complex murder case. A host of British actors have been announced as guest stars in the two-part special including Not Going Out's Sally Bretton and Father Ted actor Ardal O'Hanlon.
Death In Paradise's executive producer, Tim Key, said “We are very excited to be bringing Death In Paradise to London for the very first time. Humphrey has always been a fish out of water in Saint Marie, adjusting to the island’s ways and customs.
"But for the scenes set in London, the roles are reversed as he is back in his hometown, giving an opportunity to explore the characters that viewers know and love against a new backdrop.”
Last year, an audience of 8million tuned in every week to the Red Planet Pictures' produced show.
